persistence is the key. well, today's tip of the day is going to be is with peaches. these late varieties are in from california and other parts of the country so you have to really not compromise on selection and storage because if you do they will be mealy and won't taste good. make sure that they have the beautiful color all the way around. and at this time they are going to be brighter than normal. nice yellow and red. free from any shriveling whatsoever and just a slight give to the touch. that's it. if they are too soft at the market, don't buy them because that's a good chance they will be mealy. when you bring them home store them on the counter and enjoy them one or two days and don't wait until they get too soft or they will lose the flavor. so they are still out there. there's still some good ones. if you compromise, you may be disappointed. i'm tony tantillo, your fresh grocer. and always remember to eat fresh and stay healthy.
12:27 pm
>> i like that idea. all right. when it comes to the gym, persistence is the key. >> of course it is. this big guy has plenty of it. surveillance video caught this deer running right into a south carolina gym's front door. you think once would be enough, right? didn't get in but this deer was driven. he came back. apparently it had a zumba class inside. apparently. never made it n he finally takes off. captions by: caption colorado
